This was a very easy, tasty salad for a hot summer night. I roasted some bone-in chicken breasts and shredded the meat for the salad and added a little extra hot sauce, to taste. I still think it needed a little oomph, so next time I'll try and season the dressing a bit more. I'm still not sure what it needed, but extra salt and pepper added at the end seemed to help. This is definitely something we'll make again!
This was delicious and hit the spot! I served it with avocado per one of the suggestions at the end of the recipe.
Used shrimp instead of chicken. Quite good. Will certainly make again.
